Dinner at David’s

Chilli Pork Dumplings

Over the past five or so years we’ve eaten at David’s, the Shanghainese restaurant tucked down Cecil Place (off Chapel Street, Prahran) more times than we can remember. Aside from the one Saturday lunch that we were unable to be seated for Yum Cha, the story has always been the same – consistently excellent food, great service, and some of the freshest, tastiest, and most reasonably priced Yum Cha around.

We’ve had Yum Cha lunches at David’s a lot more than dinners, but that’s not to say we prefer one to the other. Dinner is a much different experience to the trolley-less Yum Cha – the lights are turned down, the menus expand, and a small dish of their house made and very tasty Spiced Peanuts is placed on each table.

Did you make a reservation?

I’ve been talking about starting my own food blog for a very long time…. so what is it that finally made me start???

…The overwhelming feeling of rejection & betrayal at being denied a table at our all time favourite Saturday afternoon lunch spots, thanks to a yum cha special in this weeks edition of the Epicure.

Suffering a serious case of Mondayitis, the outlook for the rest of the week was instantly improved when I received an email which simply said “you me david’s saturday”.
